Keep cozy in style with Broadleaf Slouch, a charming brioche and stockinette hat designed to ward off the winter chill. Available in two sizes and featuring instructions for a slouch or beanie style, this versatile hat is knit in the round using mohair lace and fingering weight yarn (or sport weight) held together for a luxurious drape and extra warmth.
Choose two complementary colors from your stash to hold together for the stockinette body of the hat and the brioche background on the brim, then use a single strand of fingering/sport weight yarn for the foreground of the brioche in a contrasting color to make the gorgeous motif pop!
With its little yardage requirement, Broadleaf Slouch is the perfect stash-busting project! And if you’re not a fan of mohair, no worries! You can still achieve a stunning result with Suri or Brushed Alpaca Silk by DROPS ($5/ball), or even DK yarn instead.
Don’t let the brioche motif intimidate you! This pattern includes a step-by-step tutorial to help you tackle the technique with confidence. Broadleaf Slouch is a fun, fast, and engaging knit that will make you fall in love with brioche.
Mix and match weights and colors to make your Broadleaf Slouch truly unique! As long as you swatch and get gauge, you can work with either fingering or sport weight yarn, or both! Get creative and make a one-of-a-kind Broadleaf Slouch that you’ll love to wear all winter long.
